Matthew Magallanes: Obligations Between Here and There

 Matthew Magallanes:

Obligations Between Here and There

Oral History Mark Moore
English 100
Skyline College

Mark Moore first came to the Philippines when he was 14 years old. He was the youngest of 5 to move.

The reasons of moving was for a better life and to send money back home.

The transition was rough, he was being picked on by his accent. He had to learn how to adapt.

He misses home and the thought of togetherness in a community back home. The independent fast paced life in America was hard to get accustomed to. 

His obligations started to shift from the family back to the newly built family in America.
